Down Under, part 2

Yarra-31600

It can rain in Melbourne, too. But that is an opportunity for strolling along a stretch of the Yarra river that bisects the city.

Yarra-31630

Colourful skyscrapers and bridges abound

Polly Woodside-31580

A gem is the tall ship “Polly Woodside”, here in dry dock. A nice contrast to the skyscrapers behind.

Yarra-31669

Time to cross the river

Yarra-31560

And you can meet some of the locals: “G’day mates!”

  1. Visual Norway — What an architectural impressive city. From shots you show it is a very well kept city with few cars. Perhaps the cars are kept on roads not along the paths that you walked. Enjoyed. — barbara

  2. Hvilken flott serie fra “Down Under” Herlig perspektiv og dybdevirkning i bildene. Likte spesielt godt bildet med broen i forkant!
    Ha en fin helg, Rune 🙂

  3. Nesten uvanlig å se regnfulle bilder fra Australia – jeg forestiller meg jo alltid at det er landet der det alltid er sol og tørt. Melbourne ser ut som en spennende og moderne by. Et flott byportrett du har laget.

  4. For noen kule bilder! Jeg har ikke vært så flink med bloggingen i det siste, har hatt så mye på “tapetet”. Men vel hjemme fra egen reise og tilbake til hverdagen har jeg endelig fått oppdatert meg her hos deg. For en opplevelse det må ha vært å besøke Australia! Drøssvis med motiver, håper du har mye mer å vise frem!

  5. More interesting views from a city that I’d enjoyed visiting a few times over the years. I don’t know what you would think of this, Rune, but in Australia, it’s often said that Melbourne is more European looking than the other cities.
